2K might soon showcase a brand new addition to the Borderlands universe in the form of Tiny Tina's Wonderlands spinoff. An XCOM game featuring Marvel superheroes might also be on the way.

Jason Schreier has recently confirmed the exciting rumours that publisher 2K is gearing up to announce a Borderlands spinoff series and a Marvel strategy game.

The leak was initially posted on Reddit by   u/swine_flu_greg and mentions NBA 2022, the Borderlands spinoff, the Marvel strategy title and a new action game codenamed "Volt".

Schreier recently tweeted that the leak is authentic but he's not certain that any of the games will be featured at the upcoming E3 event. 

Even though Schrier said the leak is real, take everything with a lick of salt until an official announcement or two have been made.

NBA 2K22

The leak suggests that Dirk Nowitzki will be this year's cover athlete. It's also possible that Nowitzki will grace the cover of the game's Legend Edition.

Schreier's comment: "(Oh I should add that I have no idea who's on NBA 2k22's cover, but it's probably safe to assume that part is correct since the rest is)"

Wonderlands: Codename Daffodil

The Borderlands spinoff we didn't know we wanted. 

Gearbox already trademarked the name "Tiny Tina's Wonderlands". Although not exactly news, the spinoff's style will be in the same vein as the games from the main series, and the fans will be able to play as "Multiclass-Heroes".

The rumours about Tiny Tina's Wonderlands have been swirling since last year so it's possible we'll see some of the game at E3.

New Firaxis Game: Codename CODA 

The source described this one as an XCOM game with Marvel heroes. Firaxis did drop hints that they will be working on and presenting some fresh content soon.

Codename Volt

If the rumours are true, Codename Volt will be a brand-new action game. This one is in the early stages of development, by the looks of things. Described as "Cthulhu meets Saints Row", Vold bears a logo similar to that of the Fallout games. 

Swine_flu_greg's source didn't share which studio is developing Codename Volt but they speculate it might be Hangar13, as they had a leaked contract last year that stated that they are working on an "open-world sci-fi title with supernatural elements".
